Subject [jira] [Resolved] (GUACAMOLE-248) Support for Inheriting Connection Parameters from Group
Date Tue, 25 Jul 2017 04:14:00 GMT


Michael Jumper resolved GUACAMOLE-248.
    Resolution: Incomplete

> Support for Inheriting Connection Parameters from Group

>                 Key: GUACAMOLE-248
>                 URL:
>             Project: Guacamole
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: guacamole-client
>            Reporter: Nick Couchman
>            Priority: Minor
> One of the things that might be nice to implement is the ability to define certain parts
of a connection at the group level and then have those be inherited by the connections.  The
main scenario that comes to mind is that you want to create a balancing group of (for example)
100 RDP servers.  You'd like all of the servers to use 3389 for the port and ${GUAC_USERNAME}
and ${GUAC_PASSWORD} tokens for pass-through authentication from guacamole, and the only thing
that will be different about each of the connections is the hostname or IP address to which
they connect.  The ability to define most of the settings on the connection group (or, perhaps,
a "template connection" of some sort) and then allow child connections to inherit properties
from either the parent group or template would drastically reduce the administration in creating
at least 99 of those 100 connections.
> Seems like this involves either defining parameters at the connection group level, or
creating a new "template" connection type that then connections could link to.  This also
seems to be fairly strictly limited to the JDBC authentication extension - probably not something
you're going to try to do in either LDAP or a simple file mechanism, and JDBC is the only
area where connection groups are supported, anyway.
